Very Versailles Trailing Leaves Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We try to keep our card nice and flat don’t we? Today I have actually scrunched up the card to make the decorative flower that is the main feature of this pretty thank you card.

I have used the Very Versailles Stamp Set such a lot, I really love the stamp with trailing leaves, it is so graceful and dainty and fills a lot of space on the card at the same time!

Hello Friend – 2 Step Stampin’ Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card features the Queen Anne’s Lace Stamp Set, this has some very dainty flowery images and 6 great greetings in a lovely script – those who follow me know that I do love nice lettering :-). I chose to use the ‘Hello Friend’ one for this card as I think that this kind of card can be used for practically any occasion – wouldn’t it be lovely to open an envelope and find a simple and pretty hello inside!

Once again my color choices were decided by my ribbon drawer, I wanted to use the elegant Vanilla Metallic Edged ribbon, so then chose Vanilla for my card with Cinnamon Cider and Petal Pink to coordinate.

Super Soft Quick Floral Celebration Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A couple of weeks ago I participated in a scrapbook blog hop, we had a free hand for the theme and I chose to do one for FAMILY. It was a cold and damp day when I designed the page and made me wish for spring so I pulled out some soft spring colors and the DistINKtive style Gorgeous Posies Stamp Set.

I just loved that page when it was finished, so decided to use the same design and colors, and that is what I am sharing today, it also shows scrapbook pages can inspire cards and vice versa!

Creating a frame with Gilded Leafing Embellishment.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Last week I shared an embossing technique using the new and beautiful Gilded Leafing Embellishment, this gives the most fantastic effect but is oh, so easy to do. Today I have another technique using double sided Tear and Tape to create a frame to make your card shine out!

I changed the color combination for the card in my video, just to show how different combinations look. I have also used the exclusive Sale-a-bration Corner Bouquet Stamp set which you can get for free with a $50 product order. If you buy the main supplies to create this card you will be able to choose this stamp set as your freebie!

In the early part of December I had a class to create a flip over calendar, everyone loved it and made me promise we will do another later in this new year! I thought I might start each month this year by posting the page for that month, so today I share, February which you can see has a Valentine theme.

Simple Z-fold Valentine Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are just a couple of weeks away from Valentine’s Day – it just seems a few days that we were celebrating Christmas!

Today’s card uses the Touched My Heart Stamp Set which is one of the sets you can get for free for hosting a party or if you place an order for $150 of Stampin UP goodies! I have been surprised on how versatile it has been, it has a beautiful heart stamp with leaves twisting and curling around it just perfect for Valentine or maybe a wedding or anniversary card. I have paired it with the Meant to Be Stamp set for my greeting.
